  • Patent number: 10127595
    Abstract: Item-level information of a particular item may be processed to categorize the particular item. In some instances, the particular item may be ranked across multiple merchants that are offering the particular item for acquisition. The ranking may be based on the item-level information that relates to an attribute of the particular item for the individual merchants. For example, the item-level information may include a cost of the particular item at a merchant, a rating of the particular item for a merchant, a number of calories of the particular item for a merchant, and so on. Information regarding the ranking may be displayed or otherwise output to enable the user to identify and order the particular item from a merchant that satisfies the user's needs.

  • Publication number: 20180117053
    Abstract: A panel of 12 EGFR inhibitors were screened for inhibition of EGFR phosphorylation in U87MG tumor cells engineered to express EGFR-viii. Compounds elicited a range of activity against phosphoY1173-EGFR. While one group of inhibitors had relatively weak activity against EGFR-viii (WZ4002, WZ8040, WZ3146, CO-1686, and AZD9291) another group had relatively potent activity against EGFR-viii (pelitinib, canertinib, PD168393, neratinib, AST-1306, and dacomitininb). The data described herein provide new methods of use for pelitinib, canertinib, AST-1306, and PD168393 against cancer, such as GBM, that express EGFR-viii. Furthermore, neratinib also exhibited selectivity towards splice variants EGFR-vii and EGFR-vvi compared to wild-type EGFR.

  • Publication number: 20070138179
    Abstract: Container closure (10) engageable with a container having an interior for containing a fluid, water or drink, the container closure adapted to allow mixing of the fluid and a second material. The closure (10) has a movable mouthpiece (12), a fluid opening which is associated with sealing means (28, 29) adapted to substantially seal the fluid opening in a first position and allow fluid to flow in a second position. The closure also has a regulation ring (27) with bulbous portion (30) that can open and close an opening to a reservoir (13) containing the second material.

  • Publication number: 20070098131
    Abstract: A system and method for predicting acoustic loads expected on a boiling water reactor (BWR) may include a BWR scale model, a test fixture for generating air flow in the scale model, and one or measurement devices for monitoring system behavior to predict how acoustic loads may affect plant operation for the BWR being evaluated.
